Scalable Campus Network & Wireless LAN design
This will be an intense hands-on fourteen (14) day training to teach skills required for the configuration and operation of large scale campus networks. The training will be held from April 22 to May 3, 2014.
After this training the participants will be able to design and implement a large scale campus network. This course will provide the techies with the necessary TCP/IP skills to administer a campus network.
Who Should Attend?
This course is designed for technical staff that operates a TCP/IP network with international connectivity and inter-campus connectivity.
The course is divided into three; Campus networks, Scalable networks and Wireless networks
